Quaker Biscornu

A glass of wine 

A kite 

A riverside view 

I finished my Quaker biscornu.

Stacy Nash Primitives design 1802 Biscornu PinkeepStitched on 32 Natural Linen
DMC threads

Carolyn from Just one more Stitch RAk'd me this lovely design.  Now I would like to pass it on to someone who would like to stitch it.  Leave a comment stating you would like to be entered in a draw to receive this lovely pattern on this post.  I will do the drawing in a week.

I have had a splendid week of cycling, kite flying and stitching.  One more week and it's back to the grind.



A Prairie School finish.  Stitched on 32 Limestone Belfast with DMC threads.  I have an idea of a nice finish for this which I hope to get done this week. Stay tuned!


My little basket of smalls is growing.  I hope to replace the St. Patrick's finishes with some Spring finishes. 

That's all from me for now.  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Hugs

Anne

I'm so glad you're really getting to get outside and enjoy your vacation, Anne! Good thing you live in Vancouver, though--if you lived here, you would be stuck inside due to the cold and snow :)
